    1025R Auto Connect has me pulling teeth

    Well after having my 1025r for 2 months, I had an issue I couldn't figure out, On my 60"MMM, the auto connect PTO Shaft had an issue today, the shaft for some reason in a bind, the end of the shaft where its suppose to mate with the mower PTO was pointed up nearly straight up, thankfully I never engaged the PTO, if I had, it would have broken something, like the U-Joint or Yoke on the shaft, so after piddling with it for over an hour, I gave up and loaded the MMM and the tractor onto the trailer, for the hour long drive to the John Deere where I bought it. Quality Equipment in Monroe,NC... Well much to my surprise, when I got there, after explaining the situation, Cass, the service manager and a few guys looked at it and within 5 minutes they had fixed the problem!!! They even showed my a trick in case this happened again... Hats off to the guys at Quality Equipment, Monroe, NC, Thats the definition of service!!! I fully expected, and was prepared to have to leave the tractor there and pick it up a few days later, I did not expect them to drop everything were doing to look at mine, I was very pleasantly surprised, I never knew this kind of service even existed anymore!! Thanks again to Cass and the guys at Quality Equipment Monroe, NC!!!

    I'm glad you have such a good dealer, that is important. Next time you have any issues of any nature with your tractor give a little peek on this site, there have been a couple threads on your exact problem. Might have saved you the labor and drive time. This site is unbelievably helpful, I have read threads where someone has had a problem and next time I was by my little tractor I could check for the same issue. For instance someone wrote about how there exhaust muffler was loose and I found loose bolts on mine as well, and my tractor was old enough to fall into a range of units that were delivered with the steering hydraulic hose able to be rubbed through with the front tire. Read some good solutions and went out and rotated the fittings before the damage was done.

    I have an auto connect 60D also. Things that I have learned and have done to mine.

    1. Keep all the linkage, drive shaft slip joint and u-joints lubricated.
    2. When installing the mmm and you have lowered the auto connect, don't assume it actually lowered. Get off the tractor and take a look under it. You don't have to crawl under, just take a look. Make sure the auto connect has actually lowered, especially if you have the hydraulic mmm lift, and make sure the drive shaft spline hub is aligned properly
    3. Keep the splines lubed.
    4. I installed nyloc nuts on the driveshaft angle adjustment bolt. This prevents the infamous adjustment bolt from coming loose.
    5. When installing, place the PTO control in rear only.
    6. Check the set screw in the spline adapter on the mmm gearbox to assure it is tight.

    I like the auto connect, but there are more things that have to work properly so that means there are more things to go wrong.

    Agree but I'll admit I never do #2 anymore and have never done #5. When I first got the tractor two years ago id get off to make sure the arms were down the first 10 times but haven't since. I've never had to put the pto in rear only to connect the MMM.

    He Disconnected the driveshaft from the transmission and then lightly tapped on the driveshaft with a hammer, unsticking it and allowing it to expand again, then reinstalled the shaft back on the transmission

    Yeah, now that I think about it I think I may have forgotten to lower before trying to autoconnect it, so when I drive over it, they werent lined up and the driveshaft got jammed,

    Did he grease it after it was unstuck? Lack of grease is probably why it got stuck in the first place.
